Default Tensioner Pulley

Engine making horrible noise. Tensioner pulley is gettin down with its bad self. Shaking the hell out of the tensioner. How much time do I have to replace it before it seizes completely? Only does it at idle in gear at low, low RPMs.

Now I've got to replace my belt, tensioner pulley, o2 sensor, and spark wires.

Why don't we have a smiley for BROKE?!?!?!

NOW would be a great time to replace that pulley, John. Yours is ready to give out any time now and of the things you listed, that one has the most immediate affect on the driveability of the car.

Git-er-done!!

I'm on it! Going down to appleton tomorrow. Gotta drive 70 miles on it before I can replace it, hope it'll be ok. I knew I heard some noise when I was on the highway cruising at 75. Intermittent rattling noise. Makes sense now. Posting up a vid in a sec..I think I may have another problem.

I only have one question. The tensioner I have for John is off a 93 SSEI car. Is the supercharged tensioner different?
